Description:
Ernest Hemingway ; with an introduction by Jasper Wood ; illustrations by Frederick K. Russell. | This book was published in a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies on Linweave paper with Calson type. This copy is Number 810." | Hardcover edition, beige cloth over boards; title statement and image of clenched fist raised defiantly against warplanes stamped on front cover in black and tan ink. | "Ernest Hemingway had nothing to do with the preparation of this book, never saw the proof, furnished no material for the introduction, and has just wired me protesting that he considers the introduction inaccurate and in bad taste since it gives him credit for a film the credit for which should go to Joris Ivens and John Ferno. He also protests against the F.A.I banner in front and back of the book and has requested that all money to be paid to him from the book be paid directly to Almuth Heilbrun, widow of Dr. Werner Heilbrum of the Twelfth International Brigade, who was killed in action at Huesca in June, 1937. Jasper Wood." | English.
